E2 and Diabetes


   TAGS:     Diabetes Estrogen Vascular - Arterial

Study Description: There is an extensive body of knowledge that indicates premenopausal women have an innate protection from cardiovascular disease and estrogen is what contributes to this protection (1,2). In contrast to these protective findings in humans, using an animal model, estrogen in diabetes has been indicated to contribute to vasoconstriction. Taken together, the purpose of this proposal is to investigate whether or not estrogen contributes to vascular dysfunction in premenopausal women with diabetes.
